RANDOM TESTIMONY from our founder and artisticdirector: I had 2 of my students from YAG (Memphis) win 1st place at the Apollo in New York.... The building was in Harlem New York ....old, historic, small and in an African American Community....When I travelled there in 2004 with my student who won, I said oneday I am going to build an APOLLO in Memphis....why fly to New York to show case your talent when winners come from MEMPHIS! On yesterday, the dream became a REALITY!'. About 15 children show cased their talent in the OLDEST COMMUNITY in AMERICA ORANGE MOUND/BETHEL GROVE....not a competition...but a showcase
